A survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found that around a third of Asian Americans have changed their daily routines because they are afraid they may be threatened or attacked.
The Pew Research Center surveyed 10,156 U.S. adults, including 365 Asian adults, about their experiences with discrimination from April 12 to 18, 2022.
Around one in five Asian Americans surveyed said they worried almost daily about being threatened or attacked. Over half (51%) said they worried sometimes.
Among the Asian Americans who said they worry about being threatened or attacked, 36 percent said they altered their daily routines over the past 12 months.
Asian Americans aren’t the only group altering their routines due to concerns they might be threatened or attacked. According to the report, 28 percent of Black Americans and 22 percent of Hispanic Americans surveyed said they changed their routines due to worry of threats or attacks because of their race or ethnicity.
